BUILD A HANG­ING SHELF

It’s easy to get the hang of mak­ing this sim­ple shelf

The Simple Things - - NEST -

This is a sim­ple project with ob­vi­ous shelf ap­peal, re­quir­ing no fancy equip­ment, and cer­tainly no spe­cial­ist skills. You will need: Round wooden plate Scis­sors Thin rope Sta­ple

1 Cut your rope into two pieces of about 1.5 me­tres each. The length will de­pend on how low you want your shelf to hang, so ex­per­i­ment.

2 Al­ter­na­tively, you could try braid­ing to­gether lengths of yarn to act as your rope. 3 Tie all the ends in a se­cure knot. 4 Ar­range your rope into a cross shape with the cen­tre sit­ting at the cen­tre of your wooden plate.

5 Check you’re happy with length, be­fore sta­pling rope onto the plate

6 Leav­ing a loop for hang­ing, tie to­gether the rope at the top.

7 Ta-dah! Start hav­ing fun ar­rang­ing things on your new shelf.
